In brief: I wouldn't

That medicine is bitter and of little use at this age.
It is likely to trigger more vomiting. I would concentrate on getting things with fluid value into the kid. Things like apple sauce and pedialyte are appropriate.Making sure that the kids takes in enough to pee every 6 hrs is your main goal.
